  1. Default St. Croix fly rods.

    Was at one of the local fly shops. We took one of St. Croix rods outside for a little casting. Was impressed with its performance. It was one of the Ultra models in 7 wgt. Looking for a little input as to likes and dislikes of the St. Croix rods? I believe the Ultra rods are in the $300.00 range.

    Cheers,
    Snuffy

    I was looking at the Ultra fot the 10' 5wt. and I too was very impressed. I did read on another forum where someone was not happy with their repair service however. It seems he broke a rod, sent it back and the replaced the broken portion, but was not a good fit, so it broke again.
    I ended up getting the TFO Pro. I tried them both at the Expo and really liked the feel of the TFO. Plus, $185. compared to $360. and life time unconditional warranty WAHOO!

    Quite a jump from the Orvis T3's & Winstons you generally throw. How would you compair the three?

    I recently got a Winston and love it.

    Definitly a different stroke for different folk. A tool for every job. Still got and love the Winston, Orvis, Sage and Scott, but for a 10' the TFO is the feel I was looking for. 10' are hard to find in the smaller weight. Sage does make a 4wt., but as often as I plan on using it and not sure it would feel any better, plus the fact that it is $600. makes you stop and go hmmmmmm.

    OK... let's get back on topic. Snuffy is asking about the Legend Ultra.

    They're great fly rods. I don't own any but I've cast several and they are great casting rods. They are a fast action rod with a good punch. So... in a 7wt that should work great.

    I own one ... It's an Ultra Saltwater 6-weight and a fantastic rod ... fast and accurate with plenty of strength in the butt section.

    P.S. Regrets it took me this long to get back but I've had computer problems.
